Land Based Programming

LAND BASED PROGRAMMING


What is Land Based Programming?

Allow us to collaborate with your community and Elders to incorporate traditional knowledge with STEM programming. These are week-long overnight camps designed for students Grade 5 and up. The activities include traditional teachings as well as STEM activities.

What types of activities do we do here ?

 

Canoe Building

Students will have an opportunity to build their own canoe out of cardboard. If facilities permit, we will test them in a body of water and have a cardboard canoe race!

 

Pulley-Systems

Students will learn about how pulleys work. They will use this knowledge to make a pulley system to hoist up a bucket. 

 

Shelter Building

Students will be given a tarp and some rope and will be asked to build a shelter. We will test if they can withstand the weather and a night in nature. 

 

Chair Design

Students will use the materials around them to build a chair that can hold them up. This team-building activity encourages creativity and resourcefulness.
